Erik, one of our colleagues at Random House (you remember Erik…one of his cats was the RH Employee Pet of the Month and the other has amazing skill with doors) has launched a blog called Fat Cat Lover that is stirring up quite a bit of controversy.  Featuring tubby tabbies, the blog claims to be a “daily appreciation of the curvy cat.” 

While some people think these hefty hairballers are as cute as can be, others are not so amused.  They claim that this is no laughing matter since overweight pets can suffer from a variety of health problems and have a shorter life span.  Fat Cat Lover (and some of the comments left by enraged readers) was recently featured in The New York Post and on the Today show website.  Click through for more details on the drama.

So please weigh in (sorry, couldn’t resist).  What do YOU think? Adorable or horrible?

Fat Cats. Adorable or horrible? You decide.

  • I think they are adorable

  • I just love the chubby ones! Just because they’re round doesn’t mean they’re not sound!

  • While I can see how people find them cute, I have to say (just like in people) it can’t be healthy to be that big. Can the poor thing move? Besides, chubby and obese are two different things. You can be chubby and be healthy. The cat in the picture (above)looks morbidly obese. That’s not cute. Just my two cents as a cat owner and lover.
